SourceCode Season 3 - Episode 5: First Nation rights


Published 2006


Most Americans know the story of the Trail of Tears; settlers in the New World felt they had more right to the land than the people who were in fact here first. It seems that this attitude has not quite vanished when it comes to Native American land and resources. SourceCode visits the Skull Valley Goshute Reservation in Utah where nuclear waste dumping has caused one Goshute member to stand up for preservation of their land. Meet a hero for the cause of Indian land rights, Eloise Cobell. She's suing the federal government for billions of dollars on behalf of individual Indians across the country. We'll take you to Northern Ontario were the Grassy Narrows First Nation is waging an international battle to get logging giants Weyerhaeuser and Abitibi off their lands. And come with Diné music group Blackfire on their tour around the world.
